Update: Closure of the archway until 19th December

The Closure of the archway will last to 19 December.

Original news: The archway on Olshausenstraße/Rudolf-Höber-Straße will be completely closed to all road users as from Wednesday 27 November and is expected to last until 12 December. Access for cars and deliveries to this campus area will then be solely via Otto-Hahn-Platz or the entrance from Westring/Heinrich-Hecht-Platz.

This closure is at short notice due to urgent work required to secure and dismantle the archway's cladding, which is at risk of collapsing.

Thank you for your understanding.
